MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (January 10, 2017) – Knightscope, developer of advanced physical security technologies focused on significantly enhancing US security operations, today announced a transformational plan to bring further advancements in robot security technology with a “mini-IPO” under Regulation A+, allowing anyone the ability to invest in the company’s vision for a safer America. This move marks the next step in the company’s long-term goal to cut crime’s $1 trillion negative economic impact on the U.S in half.
Knightscope first commercialized autonomous technology for real-world applications in 2015 with the K5 Autonomous Data Machine, the first fully autonomous security robot dedicated to outdoor usage 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The K5 has been in action at shopping centers, corporate campuses, data centers, stadiums and hospitals and will soon be deployed at universities, big box retailers, airports, manufacturing plants and distribution facilities. Development of the smaller K3 ensued shortly thereafter as a direct result of customer demand for a complete security solution that would include operations both indoors and outdoors.
